|Overall rating 4/5|
A very affordable quadcopter for beginners is the Ironpeas with its foldable design and fairly long flight times.
This model is so attractive not only because of the extremely low price, but also thanks to the automatic altitude hold function, exciting 3D turns and extremely high speed.
In this report, we will introduce you to the most important features and show you both the advantages and disadvantages of the model.
Although the drone is really very small, it is quite well made. It is controlled by a 2.4GHz 4-channel radio control and has a 6-axis gyro system.
With its simple and lightweight design, you can learn how the drone works pretty quickly. The delivery set includes a powerful battery that allows you to stay in the air for a long time.
An altitude hold function is also integrated, thanks to which the mini drone can fully automatically hold a certain altitude, even if you take your finger off the joystick.
Size, design and weight
The dimensions of this drone are pretty darn small. You are only dealing with a size of 14.5 x 14.5 x 3.7 cm. The weight is also only 40 g, so we advise you to fly only indoors or when there is no wind.
A cool blue pattern is applied over the head of the quadcopter. The camera is in the front and all 4 wings of the drone fold easily.
The battery can be inserted from the back and you can easily replace it at any time. However, we recommend that you always wait a while between individual flights and do not start again right away to prevent the aircraft from overheating.
Camera, memory and FPV live image transmission
Unfortunately, the drone does not have a real camera, but it is very well suited for flying drone as it is especially cheap and very easy to fly.
Battery, range and flight time
The battery is really cool. Usually drones in this price range are extremely poor in terms of flight time, but Ironpeas manage to stay aloft for 10 to 13 minutes when the flight battery is fully charged. The charging time is also very short at only 60 minutes. Some buyers report that they charge their drone with a cell phone charger that provides a higher charging current. This can potentially significantly shorten the charging time, but the quality of the battery degrades over time.
You can easily use multiple flight batteries and replace them.
The drone itself is very stable, it only becomes problematic if you want to attach an additional camera such as a GoPro, then the flight of the drone becomes extremely unstable.
Flight stabilization, gyroscope and altitude hold function are very reliable. The flight behavior is highly stable and safe. There are also different speed levels available, especially in level 3 the drone moves quite nimbly. However, as a beginner, you should stick to level 1.
Pros and cons
- Depending on the mode in which you are flying, the flight battery lasts for 10-13 minutes of flight.
